Hampton Senior High School (4022)

School Overview

Our School
Hampton SHS combines the past 'Labor Omnia Vincit - Work conquers all' with the present 'Aspire, Innovate, Achieve' by recognising both school mottos. The original is the key ingredient for the other to flourish. Our priorities:

* Providing relevant, enriching and challenging learning experiences for our students
* Creating safe environments that promote student voice, engagement and solution seeking
* Empowering and supporting our students to realise and achieve their goals
* Role modelling a culture of respect and responsibility for our students
* Positively influencing our students' lives as active and aware citizens

Our aspirational strategic direction is to provide every student with a pathway to a successful future. To enable this to occur, we must strengthen support for teaching and learning excellence. In partnership with families, our local community, the School Board and P & C, we strive to support the educational engagement of every student. Our use of evidence to drive decision-making means we value both progress and achievement as markers of success. Key highlights of 2021/2022 student success include:

Our Community
HSHS have been conducting the Bright Sparks program, Young Explorers program in Digital Technologies, STEM Challenge, SUBS in Schools and Maritime Industry School Pathways in partnership with our local primary schools resulting in joint runner up for the 2020 Governor's STEM Awards.
We have a range of sustainable community partnerships over many years including local primary schools, the Morley Schools Network, Vocational Education and Training (VET) Registered Training Organisations (RTO), ADWPL, TAFE and university partnerships. The Morley Salvation Army operates our Breakfast Club on Thursday mornings. The Bush Rangers W.A. program promotes environmental understanding, conservation actions along with team and leadership development for the cadets.
HSHS has 43 students who identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander.
The Follow the Dream Program (FTD) is an integral feature of our school aimed at increasing the aspiration and achievement of Aboriginal students at HSHS, Morley SHS Kiara and Dianella Colleges. Students can join the FTD Program and gain assistance from tutors each day along with exposure to a range of cultural camps and activities to develop their knowledge of Country and cultural kaartdijin (knowledge).
Students with a Language Background Other Than English (LBOTE) -
HSHS has 47 students with a LBOTE ranging across about 15 countries. The LBOTE action group has formulated a LBOTE resource file for teachers which includes teaching strategies, resources and access to the English as an Additional Language and Dialect (EALD) progress map support planning, teaching, monitoring and assessment practices for use with EALD students.
Students with diagnosed conditions
The Student Services team undertakes processes which ensure that documented education plans are developed, implemented and reviewed for students with identified support needs in the areas of learning (disability), mental health and wellbeing, behaviour support, attendance and engagement.

The Year 7 Professional Learning Community undertakes screening on entry to gather data to inform teaching and learning. The team undertakes PAT (Progressive Achievement Testing), literacy screening (e.g. Cars & Stars) and numeracy testing for data-informed interventions. The school delivers the evidence-based MacqLit literacy intervention for Year 7 and 8 students.
